It’s looking likely that double glazing installers in Tameside and across the UK will be busy in the coming weeks, as it seems that after the lovely start to October we’re now in for a pretty stormy time of it – and homeowners are definitely going to want to make sure their properties can withstand what the weather has in store for us over the autumn and winter.
The rainy conditions have seen flash floods affect parts of the country, with parts of Bradford experiencing ankle-deep waters and roads flooded in other parts of North Yorkshire.
Rain, thunder and lightning have now been forecast, so if you are going to be out and about pay close attention to the weather forecast and make sure you’re as prepared as you can possibly be.
It’s vital that you make sure your house is given the once over before the winter really hits. We were lucky enough to have a very warm start to October but if you haven’t already done so, you need to check your drains for leaves and other debris to prevent flooding. It’s also essential you have a look at your roof to see if there are any loose or cracked tiles that could come flying off in high winds.
Pay close attention to your windows as well to see if there are any cracks or if the seals are damaged and if you come across any problems, give your double glazing company a call to see if they can come and do some repair work before the cold comes creeping in.
